Skip the 13 inch and go for the 17 inch pie

We ordered from Cosmos on a Sunday evening the first time. They had a special on 2 small pizzas so that is what we got. The pizza was so-so. I really did not like it. A week later, on a Tuesday, we were starving and the other pizza place nearby happened to be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so... read more

We've been getting pizza here for 10-15 years, and they are consistently excellent. I love pizza of all kinds and have eaten pizza in many places and, while it may not be THE best, it's right up there, and always satisfies.

we ordered 4 17inch pizzas for 4 people and had way too much food. All our choices were very good. Easy to order. Easy to pick up. It was also the only pizza place open on a Monday.

Tried a margherita pie. Was thinking it'd be more Grimaldi's-like, but it left me short of that. I'm used to them having fresh mozzarella, etc., and that wasn't the case here. It was OK, but for me, not outstanding. Sorry.

It's in the off season that you really have the chance to sift through the noise of 'seasonal restaurants' versus those places which are good enough to stay open all year long, even when the Outer Banks' population is dwarfed to just locals and not inundated with flocks tourists. What do you find in the dead of winter at Cosmos?... More

Get there early because it is a popular place for dining with the family while at the beach. The pizza is excellent, salads fresh and crispy. Family friendly!!! You will go back.

We make a yearly trip to the obx and no matter where we stay, a trip to Cosmo's is on the list. The pizza is outstanding, the service is good and the prices are very fair. The thin style New York crust is always done just right, no soggy bottom here. The dinner's are good and the sauce is the... More

We have been eating at Cosmos for 10 or more years! They have the best pizza and salads on the beach, by far. Call for their specials. If calling Friday or Saturday nights after 7 PM, there is an hour or so for pick up: very popular and DELiCIOUS! Reasonable priced, too.

They don't have a whole lot besides pizza ( a few sandwiches) but that's OK because when you go to a pizzeria you want pizza and theirs cannot be beat. Perfect crust; not too thick or thin and just the right amount of crunch, fabulous sauce, and SOOOO much gooey cheese. Perfection. We stop on our way in to vacation... More

At the end of a day touring the local area and spending some time at the beach, we wanted an easy dinner, so called for pizza. We ordered several types of pizza and all of them were delicious. The pizza crust was very good and the sauce had a lot of flavor. The toppings were delicious and plentiful. I'm glad... More
